For this year’s U.S. Open Tennis championship at Flushing Meadows, NY, CP Communications provided two VISLINK News and Entertainment LINK L1500 high-definition wireless camera systems — operating one in 20MHz dual pedestal mode.
The combination of dual pedestal mode and the L1500-optimized LMS-T modulation scheme enabled the capture of panoramic high-definition shots of the fast-paced tennis action. These systems provided live national broadcasts for CBS Sports, which in turn provided feeds to ESPN2, the Tennis Channel and international broadcasters.
Vislink’s LMS-T delivers a high-performance alternative to DVB-T for wireless camera systems. It exploits more channel bandwidth than DVB-T and adds superior error correction. It does not suffer from excessive drop-outs and interference at the bandwidths required for high-quality HD transmission.
